About The Cincinnati Milling Machine Company: Originally called the Cincinnati Screw and Tap Company, it switched to machine making in 1889 and was then called The Cincinnati Milling Machine Company and was located downtown on Second Street. In 1905 this company relocated to Oakley near the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It was a prosperous firm that was the largest producer of machine tools in the United States. During World War I and II, the company made trucks, tanks, ships for the war efforts.
In 1970, the company changed its name to Cincinnati Milacron Incorporated (and later to Milacron, Inc.) and now has plants across the U.S. and overseas. The company is a world leader in plastics machinery, mold technologies and industrial fluids.
When you watch a movie in Oakley, remember you are sitting in place of history where many useful machines used worldwide were designed!
Rob Sibcy, president of Sibcy Cline Realtors®, was quoted in this analysis piece: “Sibcy says he believes 2011 overall will show improvement over 2010 – in spite of an artificial boost in prices and sales helped by the tax credits last year. ‘Slowly, we are coming out of this,’ he says. ‘2012 and 2013 will be much better.'”
